Force Cancer Charity - Coronavirus Update
FORCE Cancer Charity regretfully announced on Tuesday March 17 the temporary closure of its Support and Information Centre in Exeter.
The charity will continue to offer telephone and video call support to local people affected by cancer.
The decision to close its Support Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital was taken after consultation with clinical staff at the RD&E.
It follows the first reported cases of Coronavirus/Covid19 at the hospital.
All support services at FORCE’s weekly outreach centres in Okehampton, Tiverton and Honiton were also stopped with immediate effect but chemotherapy treatment will continue as normal in all three towns for now.
People with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment may be among those at particular risk from Coronavirus.
FORCE will be regularly updating its website - www.forcecancercharity.co.uk - with news of how to access whatever support is available.
